New Global Politics double degree with Waterloo

In an exciting new venture, we will be offering students a new double degree in global politics in association with the University of Waterloo, Canada.

The degree programme will combine Waterloo’s Master of Arts in Global Governance (MAGG) programme, based at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, with the choice of one of ten Masters programmes offered by the Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS) here at Warwick.

Students taking the double degree will spend a year at the University of Waterloo and a year at the University of Warwick, completing the requirements for each of their degree programmes with the thesis component supervised jointly by staff at both institutions. On completing the two year course of study, students will receive degrees from both Warwick and Waterloo.

Options for degree courses in PAIS at Warwick include: International Relations, International Security, International Political Economy, Public Policy, Political and Legal Theory, International Development, United States Foreign Policy,

Vice-Chancellor and President, Nigel Thrift said:

“Warwick prides itself on being a globally connected university which provides many opportunities for staff and students to work with their peers around the globe. This Double Masters degree programme with the University of Waterloo is another wonderful opportunity for students both at Warwick and Waterloo to add a further global perspective to their studies and research.”
